Teen Maze is a simulation of life. The purpose of Teen Maze is to encourage teens to develop a plan to make the best choices and decisions. Students are given the opportunity to explore various life decisions based on scenarios given to them at the Entrance Party. Some would make good decisions and would graduate and attend college. Others contracted STDs and became pregnant and had to deal with those choices. Some were "arrested" for underage drinking at the Entrance Party and carted off to "jail."
